I demoed these skis a whole day last week and I loved the overall experience on them.
It was a day or two after a big powder day, and I encountered almost all snow conditions that day.
I am 5'5" 105 lbs. I skied on the 169cm.
These skis are super stable, fast, and confidence inspiring. Great for skiing wide open bowls, canyons, and stuff above the treeline. A little hard to turn really fast in tight trees, but I'm not that into skiing in the woods anyway.
My rating
Powder-10/10
Stratugi windblown weirdness- 10/10
Groomers 10/10
Steeps 10/10
Tight technical terrain- 7/10
chopped up crud- 10/10
cliffs,drop offs, cornices- 10/10
moguls-8/10
parks-8/10

I got these for Christmas. They are cool looking, they have nice vents to let your gogs dry out, and match your Dakine backpack. They are a little tight fit for big Oakley spherical goggles + an extra lens but if you put them in the right way they fit PERFECTLY. They were definitely meant for more of a Smith Stance or Dragon DX goggle.

they are a large goggle- i am a little bit shorter than you and they cover a lot of face. But they look awesome and do not look that big or dorky or anything at all. if u wear them with no helmet or beanie they might look a little large, but if you ask me, it's way cooler to have a big goggle than to have some cheap,tiny thing. They are rad.

these are the perfect goggles
enough said.
Only one thing wrong with them- the lens is a little hard to put back in but I think i'll get the hang of it, and besides, if that bothers you so much, buy the oakley airbrakes, which is one step up from the splices. I would recommend getting two lenses and the facemask that fits into the goggle and you will have the sweetest goggle setup ever.

These are not ''JIB'' skis though they probably would work okay. Look up the K2 Press. Now that ski is a true blue rail ski.

The pink iridium might be a little to dark for low light. I would say Fire Ir. for bright light and H.I. Yellow for low light.
If you aren't night skiing or storm skiing i think your choices would be fine.
I have a Persimmon lens for low light and plan on buying either a black or fire iridium lens for bright light. I would use H.I. yellow for low light but two $75 lenses would be too expensive for me. :-)

This is for Grete E.(the awesome pro skier) and John Smith who both tried to help me out but there was just not enough info out there yet. Now there is. I asked the staff at Backcountry.com and they said it will come out on 10/19/11 and Oakley just posted this to there website

Pink iridium might be too dark if you're skiing storms, H.I. Yellow is a good low light lens that still has some "shiny" though its not reflective like the iridiums. If your not picky about how much light your eyes are gettin go with your choices by all means. I have a Persimmon lens for low light and plan on buying a Fire Ir. for bright light. I would use an H.I. lens for low light if i could but two $75 lenses is too expensive.
